It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's Superman

Earlier this evening two of my grandchildren were outside their home with a neighbor boy and saw something that scared them speechless.  The neighbor boy had his camera with him, so he snapped these two pictures (which my daughter-in-law sent to the local news station).

After checking online my DIL discovered that today (11/17/10) is the day of the Leonids Meteor Shower.  It indicates that it will be at it's peak at 4AM, however these pictures were taken after 4PM.
More research indicated it could have been (and I stress could have been) the Tempel-Tuple Comet, which has only been seen approximately 5 times, the last time was in 1997. 

I really have no idea what it was, but it is definitely interesting.  It appeared to be to big to be a meteor, but was it a Comet.....well your guess is as good as mine.

We Do Have Fall Colors in the South

Today I was out running some errands and decided to drive down Main St in my town and look at some of the historic homes.  As I was driving down the street I noticed that all the trees looked so lovely.  I pulled over and took a couple of pictures.  Keep in mind that I use a point and shoot camera on auto, but I still think this will give you an idea about fall in the south. 

It was raining when I took these pictures.  When I got home I decided to walk to my mailbox and thought you might like to see what I look at from my front here is my view

My lawn has already turned winter brown, and my mailbox looks so lonely.  Since we are having a rain storm with colder weather on its way, all those leaves will fall to ground very soon and I will be looking at trees like the one in the foreground that lost its leaves about two weeks ago.
